 @ happypi1314 & @ahmedabdullah

i think both of you are correct . . . It's a Ancient Game of War . . .

It's a war-like game. The foot soldiers and cavalry are present, awaiting battle. The King and Queen in their castle with their Bishops. The only combatants missing are the archers . . . bn.png

It is both and neither at the same time.

Chess is abstract enough to be used as any metaphor possible. Chess can represent war, politics, economy, life, chess could be society or anything that fits in the metaphor.

It’s only a game, but it forces me to engage in battle. With my own plots, tactics, plans, and mind. Well written Denver, a very witty way to communicate numerous thoughts on several levels. Thank you.
